Keep young children and infants away </p><p>from the recorder. Always use and store the recorder out of the reach </p><p>of young children and infants to prevent the following dangerous situations which could cause serious injury:1 Becoming entangled in the recorder strap, </p><p>causing strangulation.2 Accidentally swallowing the battery, cards or </p><p>other small parts.3 Accidentally being injured by the moving </p><p>parts of the recorder. Do not use or store the recorder in </p><p>dusty or humid places. Do not disassemble, repair or modify </p><p>the unit yourself. Use SD/SDHC memory cards only. </p><p>Never use other types of cards. If you accidentally insert another type of </p><p>card into the recorder, contact an authorized distributor or service center. Do not try to remove the card by force.</p><p> Do not operate the unit while operating a vehicle (such as a bicycle, motorcycle, or car).</p><p>f Caution: Stop using the recorder immediately if </p><p>you notice any unusual odors, noise, or smoke around it.</p><p> Never remove the batteries with bare hands, which may cause a fire or burn your hands.</p><p> Be careful with the strap. Be careful with the strap when you carry the </p><p>recorder. It could easily catch on stray objects and cause serious damage.</p><p> Do not leave the recorder in places where it may be subject to extremely high temperatures.</p><p> Doing so may cause parts to deteriorate and, in some circumstances, cause the recorder to catch fire. Do not use the charger or AC adapter if it is covered (such as a blanket). This could cause overheating, resulting in fire.</p><p> Handle the recorder with care to avoid getting a low-temperature burn. When the recorder contains metal parts, </p><p>overheating can result in a low-temperature burn. Pay attention to the following:</p><p> When used for a long period, the recorder will get hot. If you hold on to the recorder in this state, a low-temperature burn may be caused.</p><p> In places subject to extremely cold temperatures, the temperature of the recorders body may be lower than the environmental temperature. If possible, wear gloves when handling the recorder in cold temperatures.</p><p>Safety precautions</p></li><li><p>7</p><p>EN</p><p>Battery handling precautionsFollow these important guidelines to prevent batteries from leaking, overheating, burning, exploding, or causing electrical shocks or burns.</p><p>f Danger: The recorder uses a lithium ion battery </p><p>specified by Olympus.
